Which flight will get you there fastest?

This tool might look dry at first, but it's addictive!

This tool might look dry at first, but it’s addictive!

The data geeks over at the FiveThirtyEight blog have cooked up a pretty addictive—and interesting—travel tool. Analyzing six million flights, the team figured out not only which airports will get you where you need to go fastest, but even, on average how many minutes will be added or subtracted to your flight based on your chosen airlines.

You can pretty much pick any origin airport to get its stats and then add your destination and see how efficient your airport is in getting there. Users can even look at airlines and see which ones are more efficient by month.

A pretty cool tool that might be good for those near lots of airports, but not so much for those in smack-dab in the middle of Indiana.

Play with the tool online now.
